Abs Best Friend

Well friends, my posts have been sporadic lately. toImage Between preparations and coursework, I’ve been neglecting my poor blog. But don’t fear! I have not lost that blogger passion.

I want to leave you with a quick note about two ab machines that WILL give you such great results. Not every gym has these. I found these at my current University. The weird part is the nice gym I pay to go to does not have these. I utilize the best of both gyms I attend.
These are hard at first. Start by doing sets of 10 reps. Try to do 4 to 5 sets. I typically start my entire ab routine by using the
incline ab machine Next I use the angled crunch (Much harder)
3 sets: 40, 20, 20. 2 sets: 15, 15.

Building the foundation with Legs

I’ve been MIA for a while. Exams on top of exams lead me to a handful of all nighters these past two weeks. Today I wanted to signify the importance of working out the lower body.

Much like a house, your body can only handle a given weight without a proper foundation. Common sense will make clear that with stronger legs, your body will support muscle growth, which in turn will allow you to lift more weight. Besides, who doesn’t enjoy seeing some nicely toned legs?

My cousin came across the Superman Program from Muscle and Fitness Magazine. It’s a stellar workout. No muscle goes unchecked. Each muscle group is worked twice a week in four days time. We’ve gotten through week one and I’m feeling and seeing the results as we both progress through it.

Below I’ve listed some popular leg exercises, that you can easily reap benefit from.

As a beginners workout you can perform each of these at
3 sets; 12-15 reps

Squat
Leg Press
Leg Extension
Reverse Extension
Calf Raises
